License for besidemyselfremix
Huh? Dean, did you misread what I have written as my being upset or not liking your remix? If so, it was unintended.
I am just trying to be helpful in pointing out how Creative Commons designed the Share-Alike clauses. A license without an SA bit can (with the exception of the ND licenses) have derivatives made and different licenses placed on the derivative than on the original. (There are some things you can't do like put a BY on a BY-CA original by removing the BY.) But when the SA in in play, BY-SA or BY-NC-SA, then derivatives have to have basically the same license as the original. This is by design and sort of mirrors (at least with the BY-SA) what the GPL does in the software world.
So, do you have a problem with me saying to you that it is ok for you to make money (should you wish to make the effort) with the remix you did? Do you have a problem with letting some other musician or DJ make some money from your remix? Do you have a problem with letting me make some money with your remix? (Not in my plans at the moment, but I like flexibility myself.)
I am not sure where the seeming anger is coming from. Would you be so kind as to explain?
You can't do that with SA licenses. With mine, anyone can make money with my stuff, including you. And I can in turn make money with yours if I care to make the effort. This is what I want. The SA part means you can build on my stuff as you have done but you must use basically the same license. You can't add the NC bit to your stuff that builds on my BY-SA stuff. The licenses do not work that way.
(btw, why not drop by my little part of kompoz and say hello: drew on kompoz
